Socko escapist film fare, Suddenly It’s Spring starts from foundation of a topnotch script, and has been aptly cast and directed.Story concerns marital team of lawyers, husband and wife, who had agreed to separate before the war. World strife delays the divorce and script picks them up again just as the WAC wife is returning from overseas. The husband already has his discharge, has fallen for another gal and wants the divorce pronto. His wife has new ideas since her army service and would like to try again. Fun springs from Fred MacMurray’s prodding of Paulette Goddard to get her to ink the necessary papers and her continual coy delay.
